What is your ‘Why’?

My 'why' is to provide guidance and support to students and families who feel they may have been misinformed or misguided. I also want to help ensure that they are receiving quality services. My 'why' is influenced by my mother, who worked as a Mental Health Nurse and introduced me to individuals with disabilities at an early age; showing me compassion, patience, kindness, and love. And my father, who did not graduate high school in a traditional method, but was able to enter a career pathway that led him into the medical field as a Dialysis Technician. He later went on to owning his own medical practice.
